You should have arrived here from the lovely Sylvia Solorio: http://bellascrapbookdesigns.blogspot.com , however if you happened here by chance you're in luck! There will be 20 stops full of great ideas, so grab a beverage and head over to the hostess' blog. Staci's blog is at http://preciousmem.blogspot.com/. The sponsor for this hop is Designs on Cloud 9 at http://designsoncloud9.com/ and she has offered us a $20 gift voucher for the GRAND prize. Head over to her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Designs-on-Cloud-9/189551027737837 and show her some love. One lucky person who comments on this hop will be the winner of this generous prize. (One person from each stop will be chosen at random and we will then hold a random draw with those 20 people and one lucky person will win the grand prize).
For my project today I am sharing a bottle cap pendant I made (yes you read that right.. bottle cap). I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge for the roses and am slowly discovering a love of quilling as well so thought I'd do some quilled leaves on it.
I am also sharing the packaging I made for it which was also cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge and the ribbon is from May Art. I am gifting a few of these for Valentine's day this year as well as making them with one of my cricut classes I teach.
Hope you enjoy and if you like what you see please come back and join me next week as I will be posting to my blog as well as the Creating with Art Philosophy facebook group (for my guest designer spot this month... yay!!) some cricut tutorials and projects!
